Boosted Shoe You should easily be able to clear those with no rubbing issues. Maybe go to a c900 type wheel to switch up the offset, I'll try and get some good pictures of the rolling stock on the race car. Full lock this car wont rub the tire, no engine in it currently though, but dont ever recall it rubbing anything with the engine in either. Either way the tires on mine are far wider that a 205mm

saabfan9 is there any clearance or rubbing issues with a 7" wide rim?...thinking in the area of a 195 or 205 mm (195/60 or 205/50 ish maybe)

Boosted Shoe Hasn't raced since 95, planning on racing it in vintage as soon as I can get it done. I have no clue what the tires would equate to since it's on goodyear race slicks. The size I have on it are 22x9x15

saabfan9 hey shoe do you ever have the car at blackhawk or road america (kohler vintage)? would love to see the car--any pics (i'm hoping to build my 99 with a race setup in mind)

saabfan9 right,love the fab comment...hey what is the rubber size on your 7" (i.e. 205/70/15)

Boosted Shoe You could easily fit tires that wide, would recommend some wheel flares depending how wide you want to go, my race car has 15x7 wheels but the offset is such that I have to run those wider wheel flares.

Here's a mantra you could apply to any question you may ever have: Everything will fit/work with enough fabrication =P

what size are the tires on the 99? could you fit a 7 or 8" wide under there? what are some of the options as far as clearance?...thanks for the help guys
